The couple for whom I wrote this poem wanted nature to be part of their marriage vows because that was the most sacred way they knew of to pledge themselves to one another. Standing under the sky, they felt as if they were in God's presence. I was happy to write this poem as a part of their marriage ceremony.
Our love is deep and constant as the sea,
yet fresh as mountain air in early spring
and free as meadowlarks who, taking wing,
come home to find their rest in nest and tree.
Our love is life, for earth and sky are we,
and air and water––and two hearts that sing.
These are the lasting treasures that we bring...
I give myself to you, and you to me.
You give yourself to me, and I to you.
On this, our wedding day, with loved ones near,
the dream we found together has come true.
Our hands are joined, and now our path is clear:
to make love live and breathe in all we do.
This is our marriage vow, for God to hear.
